    Wow! these are amazing! It’s quite daunting to see all these celebrity caricatures when I do them myself. But they inspire me to better mine!

    I particularly love the rolling stones caricatures! And the Jack Nicholson one!

    I really enjoyed -with very few exceptions- this amazing collection. All reflect very well the public perception personality of the subjects. No. 5 (Clint Eastwood by chngch); No. 22 (Snoop Dogg by AnthonyGeoffroy); No. 42 (Meryl Streep by AndreaGerstmann) and No. 50 (Dr. House by hrod-rich) been the best…

    The “Jacko” Michael Jackson caricature by (hu ?) karsaprada is the exact COPY (with no talent) of Sebastian Krüger work.
    I don’t understand how people DARE doing this ; steale another artist’s work and pretend it’s his own.

    Look at that (the real work of the real artist) :

      And thanks for the comment :)
      I really like the way the Meryl Streep one is done aswell. A lot of good pieces here yes :)
